“Today, you’ll find SIMs present in all sorts of devices. In five years’ time there will be billions of SIMs, all of which will need managing, all of which will need billing,” says Karl McCaffrey, GridTEQ, CEO. “As communications billing experts, we want to make it easy for companies to self-manage their SIM estate. We then want to provide them with deep analytics for all of their data to allow them to make intelligent decisions and to charge for the services delivered.”
GridTEQ have developed a high capacity, powerful and secure solution that can provide and analyse the information from tens of thousands of SIMs. The Vodafone Global M2M Platform provides the layer of functionality necessary to create a seamless Wi-Fi experience, while selecting the most cost effective and best performance connections dynamically.
The Vodafone agreement means we can funnel unused data capacity to where ever and whenever it’s needed. For the traveller it means a seamless Wi-Fi experience. The data usage volumes we are monitoring and reporting on suggest that customers are happily making use of this service.”
